This week’s podcast recommendation is the Marsfall Podcast. Marsfall is a new science-fiction series that follows the first colonists settling on the planet Mars. Led by their fearless commander Jacki O’Rania, and assisted by the colonial artificial intelligence unit ANDI, our colonists strive to make a home on the Red Planet while exploring its deeper mysteries.
The recording values are great with this show. The characters feel real and believable, each with their own quirks and failings. Living on such a harsh planet is not easy in any way, and the show does a great job of showing this. But it’s also well balanced with humor, mostly thanks to Andy the quirky AI. Be sure to check it out.
Finally, thanks for listening. Without you, there wouldn’t be any point in doing this podcast. So thank you and see you in two weeks with Episode 13: Anjikuni.
